IPE PORTAL Advances Interprofessional Collaborative Practice Education

High-quality, peer-reviewed, competency-based learning modules for interprofessional health education are now available through a new innovative online portal launched by the Interprofessional Education Collaborative (IPEC). Based on Core Competencies for Interprofessional Collaborative Practice, these materials are designed to provide tools to prepare tomorrow's health professions work force for interprofessional, team-based, patient-centered, and community- and population-oriented care.

Funding support was provided by the Josiah Macy Jr. Foundation and the Interprofessional Education Collaborative (IPEC). The Interprofessional Education Collaborative (IPEC) is a national organization connecting health professions for better care. The founding members include the American Association of Colleges of Nursing, the American Association of Colleges of Osteopathic Medicine, the American Association of Colleges of Pharmacy, the American Dental Education Association, the Association of American Medical Colleges, and the Association of Colleges of Public Health.
